Teaching

  • EG-220 Process and Pilot Plant Operations A

    This module supports and amplifies lectures by providing practical experience of process equipment, its operation, performance and construction. The two components of the module are Equipment Assembly (EA1) and Site Visit / Project. EA1 is carried out in groups of approximately 5 and the site visits are conducted using the same groups (with a total of 15 people on each site visit). The module involves a range of activities to enhance team work, report writing, time management and presentation skills as well as to further the understanding of subjects covered in taught modules.

  • EG-304 Safety and Loss Prevention

    This module aims to provide a basic knowledge of the technical issues underlying safety and loss prevention on process plant, introducing risk and hazard assessment together with the legal framework of obligations for organizations and individuals.

  • EGA225 Process and Environmental Plant Operations

    This module supports and amplifies lectures by providing practical experience of process equipment, its operation, performance and construction. The three components of the module are Equipment Assembly (EA1), the Unit Operations Laboratory (UOL) and Project. EA1 is carried out in groups of approximately 5, the UOL experiments are carried out in pairs and the project are usually conducted with groups of 5. The module involves a range of activities to enhance team work, report writing, time management and presentation skills as well as to further the understanding of subjects covered in taught modules.

  • EGA319 Environmental Engineering Design Project

    This module aims to give Environmental Engineering students experience in handling a complex and integrated process design. This task will require, and so reinforce, the material taught throughout the whole undergraduate course. The module provides training and working in a team environment on a major project and incorporates business skills and sustainability.

  • EGA326 Chemical Engineering Design Project

    This module aims to give students experience in handling a complex and integrated engineering process design. This task will require, and so reinforce, the material taught throughout the undergraduate course and an additional amount of material from directed private study. The module provides transferable skills related to working in a team environment on a major project.

  • EGC401 Industrial Engineering and Research Practice

    This module aims to give students practical experience in either the industrial setting or the research environment. Either two day placements in industry or two day research placements within the College of Engineering are conducted. The industrial placements are determined by interview with the companies involved or College staff. A range of research projects will be offered by the College staff. The module aims to reinforce and deepen material taught previously in the undergraduate environment and broaden practical skills learnt during the previous years. The module will provide an opportunity to apply to industrial/research problems the knowledge obtained within the undergraduate course. The module will also give experience in teamwork, communication, presentation and planning skills plus where appropriate the experience of the management structures and practices of industrial organisations or research projects.
